Moller M400 Skycar

The Moller Skycar is a prototype personal VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft — a "flying car" — called a "volantor" by its inventor Paul Moller, who has been attempting to develop such vehicles for many years.

Urban X-Hawk

The Urban Aeronautics X-Hawk is a design for a flying car which is being developed by Rafi Yoeli of Tel Aviv, Israel. Yoeli and his privately held company, Urban Aeronautics, claim to have flown the car to a height of 3 ft, though they say that greater heights are possible. It will be about the size of a large van. The X-Hawk and its smaller version, the Mule, would be used in search and rescue operations where a helicopter would be useless or at least very dangerous, such as evacuating people from the upper stories of burning buildings.
